I’ve recently been reminded how we are fully known by the Lord. Fully seen. Meaning He see’s ALL of us. There is no depth to our hearts that He doesn’t already know about. And like the loving father that He is, He aches for us to bring those deep places into His throne room and lay at His feet him.
We often try to stuff things down. Thinking if we don’t acknowledge those thoughts or those questions they’re not really there. But what that does is actually starves our spirits. It quenches the healing and the work the Lord wants to do within us. It cuts Him out of the places He longs to be in most.
Those fleshly thoughts, God knows them. The hurt you’re dealing with, God knows. Those deep rooted questions, God knows them too. Allowing ourselves to acknowledge those places in our hearts doesn’t reveal them to the Lord, He already knew. But bringing those things to light allows Him the space He’s been waiting for to speak Into those places. It opens up our hearts for Him to work. Brining those places to light releases the hold the enemy has had on has. What’s brought to light cannot go back into darkness.
Friends, there is absolutely nothing that can separate us from the love of God. There is no question that your heart is wrestling with that God can’t handle. There is no fear that God can’t speak into. There is no darkness that God can’t turn into light. Lean into Him. He already knows. But He can’t heal what we aren’t willing to bring out of hiding and lay at His feet. He can’t heal those places we aren’t quite willing to go to yet.
Hit your knees. Be undignified enough to lay your heart out before the Lord, I promise you, you won’t get up off your knees the same person.
“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.” Psalms 139:1-2 NLT
